not let interest groups persuade us otherwise. we need restrictions and sensible gun control legislation. we need them here and we need them now. our children are counting on us and we really need to not let them down. i yield back. mr. murphy: i yield 1:30 to the gentlelady from california, ms. esh -- eshoo. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady is recognized. ms. eshoo: i thank the gentlelady from connecticut. there have been many heart -wrenching tributes this evening. on behalf of my constituents in the 14th congressional district in california, i hope that our words and our prayers and also our future actions will be a source of comfort to the parents of the victims and to the community of newtown, connecticut. it is appropriate that we offer our prayers and our sympathy, but that's not enough. that is not enough. it is in this chamber and in this congress we're together. we can indeed make the changes that the american people in their and wish are looking for. i can't help think of the words of you lincoln's gettysburg address when he said the nation will long remember what we sa

the united states as we speak. and all of this just as millions of us are packing our bags and planning to travel to see our families for the holidays. much of the midwest looks like this. three screens for you. some people could be stuck in up to a foot of snow. half dozen states across the midwest from nebraska to minnesota and wisconsin all under blizzard warnings right now. in iowa, tens of thousands of people have already without power. this storm is not just hitting the midwest, it's unleashing a chain reaction of extreme weather even farther south, as well. i want to take you down to texas. take a look at this. this is not what you usually see from the tower cams in texas. the intense winds stirred up a major dust storm there. and this caused a 23-vehicle pile-up. one person was killed, and at least seven people sent to the hospital because of this. in alabama, not far away, the storm system spun off at least one tornado near mobile. and that damaged homes, as well, and brought down power lines there. as i mentioned, all of this could not come at a worse time. this is one of the
that he stood up and did something to make us all feel better today. >> former marine, a dad, doing what's right, doing his duty. >>> hello, everyone. don lemon here, top of the hour. you're in the cnn "newsroom." >>> a senior navy s.e.a.l. officer dead in afghanistan. commander job w. price, leader of s.e.a.l. team 4 was found dead yesterday by members of his unit. the initial conclusion is that price committed suicide. the navy's investigating. stay with cnn for more details from our pentagon correspondent in just a minute. >>> more than 100 people were killed in syria today. civilians doing nothing more than waiting in line for bread. witnesses say a syrian military aircraft dropped bombs on this small village and hit a bakery where scores of people were gathered trying to get desperately-needed food. witnesses say the hospitals cannot handle all the casualties. >>> the people of egypt give a thumbs up to a new constitution drawn up by the country's most islamist assembly. this weekend was the second round of a nationwide referendum. the new constitution adjusts the leadership positio
ablt of violence in our society. but that can't be an excuse for an action. >> good to have you with us tonight. folks, thanks for watching. almost 24 hours ago, president obama called for a change in this country. now it's up to all of us to make sure changes come to pass. the community of newtown connecticut is still deeply mourning the lives of 26 people, 20 of them children. the president struck an almost impossible balance of heartfelt emotion and out ragrage. the weight of the moment. no american can relive the horror of this. >> we can't tolerate this anymore. these tragedies must end. and to end them, we must change. we will be told that the causes of such violence are complex and that is true. no single law, no set of laws can eliminate evil from the world or prevent every senseless act of violence in our society. but that can't be an excuse for an action. surely we can do better than this. >> this is a moment in history where an event alters the direction of a country and moves lawmakers to unity. dianne feinstein was the first to announce an update on an assault weapons ban w
using a file that you can down load on the internet. you can actually down load it right here. i have one on my computer. it makes me wonder about the next time nbc comes and checks my computer. this is what happens when a person fits a lower receiver on a gun that is not regulated when they printed it with a 3d printer. this is the video they released of themselves firing bullets out of it. as you can see, the 3d gun failed and busted apart after it fired about six rounds, which makes it yes, a gun, but the technical term for what kind of gun it is is it is a crappy gun because it blew apart. but this kind of thing is not going to stay a crappy gun for long. not when you can get this far with stuff you can find around the house. for all the work that has gone into thinking about who is allowed to have a gun in america and where you can buy one and what kinds of guns people are allowed to have, that all kind of goes out the window. people can just down load their chosen weapon at home and have it made manifests at their desk, as a fully functioning real-life weapon. we are not far off
bloomberg says are killed in shootings each year in the u.s. >> in a democratic society, you have to come together in what the majority of people want. every time there's a poll, the majority want sensible gun restrictions. >> reporter: they're pushing for tighter gun lawns including the type of assault weapon used in the newtown massacre. >> my daughter would have been 19 december 23. >> reporter: nardine's daughter was killed in a drive-by shooting moments after she attended the funeral of another shooting victim. >> it just shouldn't take so much bloodshed. >> reporter: the group joined mayor bloomberg in a new ad campaign pressuring lawmakers to come up with a plan to reduce the number of guns on the streets. >> i demand a plan, and so should you. >> reporter: dozens of people marched against the national rifle association in washington. >> shame on the nra! >> reporter: speaking out for a political action committee, the group says the gun rights group is partly to blame for tragedies like newtown. but the executive director of gun owners of america thinks principals and teachers shou
and hawaii. that's he humility he showed his entire life. there was no staff there just the two of us. we talked for an hour. i would always remember -- having passed away yesterday, it will be imbedded in my mind. as we left, we both thought about fact we had not been able to sit down and talk like that enough. he professed at that time -- his words -- how lucky he has been his whole life. he said i got at emphysema now. i said, not from smoking. he said, i learn to smoke in the war as a boy. he smoked from 1944 to 1967. he told me he had lung cancer. but they were wrong. they took part of his lung out. he talked about how lucky he had been with surviving what he fought with lung can certification but how lucky he had been his while life, for example, the war. i'm sure people would not reflect on his massive injuries as being lucky. butth but he considered he was lucky to have lived. he had been called upon with three other people, three other soldiers, to cross a river in the dark of night, to find out what was going on, on the other side of the river, and he and his three companions, i
of us who had the privilege to serve with you. i hope and i pray that god will give you and your wife many, many more years of life and enjoyment because you have certainly earned it, because you have served not only the united states house of representatives, but you have served us, you have served the people of our districts as well as helping us be better members of congress. so with that i will close by asking god to please bless you and your family and may god continue to bless the house of representatives and jay pearson, you will be in our hearts until the day we die. god bless you. . mr. woodall: at this time, it's migrate pleasure to yield the gentleman from california, chairman of the ways and means health subcommittee, mr. herger. mr. herger: i thank my good friend. how wonderful it is to be able to sit here and listen to all these incredibly warm remarks from people who, like myself, know and love jay pearson. and there's a reason for that. jay, you're one of the best of the best. and i think, it's hard to believe that 26 years comes and goes so very, very quickly, but it
